My 29 gallon journal

Hey all! I walked out of a pet store yesterday with a new 29 gallon tall kit. I set it up with some driftwood and a cave thingy and put my one of my male betta, Fuji in. These only in there temporarily as some eye candy until I stock it. I'm planning on neons, short tailed male guppies or females, harlequin rasbotas and as a centrepiece, a pair of dwarf gouramis.

Sorry for all the grainy photos, BTW! I'll try to find my camera later.
Here's one of the heater:

i like the stocking your thinking of

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

I guess it's time for an update. I've got a new stocking plan, 7-10 tiger barbs, 2 dwarf gouramis and ~5 cory cats. I have 3 tiger barbs and a DG ATM. I'm going to get more fish when I clear up the dwarf gourami's case of ich. Good photos are coming!

Pic time!

These were taken this morning and yesterday.









And Chesh, most of the ich has moved off him to spawn(?) so the heat should work soon. I'm really happy for little Neo (his name). Also, the tiger's names are Curly, Larry and Moe. I'm still figuring out which name to name each one though. I dropped the water level so the filter output is about 2" up. One more thing, the photos of Neo were taken before the majority of his ich left.
